Washington Academy of Sciences

Awards for Scientific Achievement

 In order to recognize scientific work of merit and distinction, the Washington Academy of Sciences gives awards annually to scientists who work in the greater Washington D.C. area.  These awards are presented by a colleague at our Annual Awards Banquet, which is a formal affair with a gourmet dinner in the Washington, DC area.  The public is invited to attend and to help us celebrate and recognize the extraordinary achievements of a select group of scientists and engineers.

The history of the Awards program, begun in 1940, is literally a catalog of over 60 years of scientific achievement. While we have honored these scientists over the decades, we equally have been honored by our association with them.

To nominate someone for an award please print and complete the Award Nomination Form.
